Modern Home Tour: Vancouver

Modern Home Tour: Vancouver

People of Vancouver, I envy more than your healthcare privileges. You have one helluva Modern Home Tour coming up this Saturday! Being that I reside 2,200+ miles away, I will just have to lust after your bounty. Check out what’s in store:

Beautiful modern kitchens, featuring unique elements like this concrete/wood combo on the bartop at right:

…or this asymmetrical island:

…and fun use of color:

You’ll also see more than your fair share of drool-worthy modern living rooms:

Not to mention the requisite funky staircases:

…and the occasional cobalt blue glass surrounding a steam shower:

While this isn’t an “outdoor” tour per se, there will be plenty of gorgeous landscaping to ogle:

The icing on top? This brilliantly-conceived sliding door, with its optical illusion mural treatment, opens to reveal a home office with floor-to-ceiling glass walls that create the illusion of working outside (click to enlarge):

IMHO, seeing that one fine detail in person is worth the price of admission.
